Great selection of unique and interesting dishes, lots of great things to try, and reasonably priced for the quality of cuisine. The views from the open-air restaurant are fantastic!

Every dish we tried was wonderful, and the sunset view is spectacular. It's a small and intimate restaurant at the Hotel Moana, but rivals food quality anywhere. My compliments to the chef.

Hello, we only stayed at the hotel one night, unfortunately. We would have liked to have stayed more. The dining situation was wonderful…. the breakfast was great. The dinner was wonderful! My husband and I had one entree, a tapas, and a salad. The presentation was great, the seafood very fresh and tasty and the price, was so moderate. Everyone else comments on the view, yes it is great. But, we actually really liked the play list! The music was not blaring, but very interesting and romantic. We loved the entire experience!
